Two Japanese majors in the Department of Languages were recipients of a scholarship awarded by Chukyo University in Aichi Prefecture, Japan. Katrina Killinger (double major, Japanese and English) and Alan Wright (Japanese major, computer science minor) are finishing their year-long study abroad program at the university and received the award for being the exchange students with the highest GPAs.
At the award ceremony, Katrina gave a thank-you speech in Japanese. More information about the ceremony is available in Japanese here.
Jae Takeuchi, assistant professor of Japanese, said, “I have taught both of these students in different classes and they are very much deserving of this award!”
